Hello! I'm moving to Canberra from Brisbane for 3 months for work. I just finished uni, studying economics. As a housemate, I like to socialise with the occasional wine, but definitely am not a party gal. I don't smoke or have any pets, but I do have a boyfriend who would visit occasionally (he lives in Brisbane, so not that often). I enjoy keeping a clean home so if you do too that would be perfect. As i'm only coming down for a little while i really need the room to be furnished, with a bed at least. Let's chat!
I am a Canberra local who enjoys staying fit, music and travel. I am respectful of others and like to keep a clean and tidy household. I work full-time in IT and have active social life. I am easy going and like to get to know people but i'm also happy doing my own thing. I would be interested in teaming up to rent a house as I already have my own furniture and appliances. I am available from early November.
Friendly, chill, and easy to get along with, i am a 26 year old full time professional working in the television industry, and working infrequent freelance work in art and animation. I am a non smoker, and interested in most things. Most of the details on here are open to negotiation! I just had to click boxes. Like I said, i am pretty chilled and relaxed about everything!
I'm 22, working multiple jobs, super reliable, easy going and very tidy when it comes to shared spaces, I'm pretty quiet and prefer nights in but still keen to hang out with a drink and a game or movie every now and then
I work full time in government like most people in this town. I enjoy cycling, bars, road trips, and smashed avo brunches. I'm clean, easygoing and respectful of others' space. All the good things you want in a housemate. Active outside the house but am always happy to chat over dinner or a glass of wine! Available to move in anytime between now and November 13!
nursing student, singer, works on llama farms. I'm a simple guy who gets on with pretty much anyone who has a sense of humour. I have a dog, Blue Bear, house trained and goes to work with me so we'd only be home in the afternoons. My lease is ending so Blue Bear and I are needing a room pretty soon. I am clean, organised and considerate of others. Its been really hard finding a room for me and Blue Bear so any help would be greatly appreciated. Love to cook. Pineapple on Pizza is Satan incarnate though.
Looking to find a new roomie to replace my current one who is moving to Canada. House is close to civic with near by bus stops and walking distance to the local shops, farmers market at EPIC, Catholic University and Mt Majura. Clean and tidy house that is fully furnished apart from the bedrooms (second freezer in the kitchen for extra meals). Plenty of off street parking, back deck that is always sunny and veggie patch! VDSL2 wifi available as well. Bedroom fits a double/queen bed, and a medium desk. There is no wardrobe however it fits clothes rack easily. Sunny room with blackout curtains and double glazed windows throughout the house. If you would like any further info please contact me.
I'm a first year ANU student who is looking for a new place to stay. I'm respectful and will always keep common areas clean. I love to watch movies and tv shows but am also a lover of books. I take my studies pretty seriously so when I have assignments I will pretty much be locked up in my room procrastinating. However, other than that I am quite sociable and enjoy a good chat with my roommates. I'm a pretty chill person and not much really gets to me that easily. Did I mention my love of animals? I seriously love animals. I had two dogs, a cat, a couple turtles, a hamster... In other words, I have no problems with pets. Also, I grew up in a bunch of different places (Malaysia and Japan just to name a couple) so I'm also really into traveling and learning about new cultures. Actually I myself am half Japanese and Australian so culture is one of my "things" I guess. If you're a friendly, inviting person who is open to living with a laid back person like me, please don't hesitate to contact me because I think we'd make perfect housemates!
WHO: I’m planning to move from Melbourne to Canberra soon - I have my eyes on ANU in 2018 so I want to spend the next year working and getting myself set up in Canberra. I’m quiet, independent and prefer to keep to myself. I’m not unfriendly and am happy to chat now and then but I am definitely not a party person. I’m clean, tidy and organised – when you see me around the house it will most likely be when I’m cleaning or in the kitchen preparing my meals for the week. I’m (mostly) vegan, don’t drink or smoke, and I am queer-friendly and pet-friendly. WHAT: I’m looking for a tidy sharehouse that I can come home to after work and on weekends knowing I can relax in peace and quiet. Ideal housemates will be tidy, responsible, and considerate of others. I don’t mind if you drink/smoke/eat meat as long as there’s no smoking indoors or drunkenness, and you don’t hang **** on me about my choices! I am looking for an unfurnished room that can fit a single bed, large chest of drawers, bookcase and desk. I will also need somewhere to park my car and some space in a kitchen cupboard for the bit of kitchenware I have. Internet access is also desirable. I’m hoping not to spend more than $200pw (plus bills) but would consider paying more for the right place. I’m hoping to stay long-term, but will also consider short-term opportunities. WHERE: As a newbie to Canberra I have no preference for area, so don’t be put off if your suburb is not in my list. My priority is finding the right place with affordable rent. WHEN: I can be flexible – hoping for mid- November but it will depend on what happens with work in Melbourne and, of course, when the right place is available. I would consider paying rent earlier than my actual move to secure the right place. HOW: I’m coming to Canberra next weekend (29-30 October) hoping to check out some places on the Saturday, and Sunday if need be. So if you would like to meet me and show me your place, or know more about me, please text or message me by Friday with a bit about your place and why you think I’ll be a good fit, and we’ll go from there. I might not be able to get around to everyone so the more you can tell me, the better!
Relaxed 22 year old male with a naturally happy disposition seeking place to stay while studying primary school teaching for 4-5 years Into video games and movies, always up for a chat or an impromptu adventure, ideally looking for a place I can feel at home and enjoy the company of the people I am staying with - I don't smoke and I drink occasionally I enjoy boxing for fitness/fun, am a mediocre table tennis and billiards player but make up for lack of skill with enthusiasm as I do with all aspects of life Am an experienced cook and live a clean minimalist lifestyle love animals so any home with pets would be well received
I am an ANU student that's lived in sharehouses for the past 2 years. I mainly keep to myself but I am always up for a chat. I am into health and fitness and I am not really into parties but don't mind the occasional drink
About the room: You can take your pick from two rooms - one with built in robe, one without. The room is unfurnished. You have your own bathroom and separate toilet (only shared with the guest room, available for all house mates to use for visitors). About the house: This is a light and airy big 3 bedroom house with a garage, carport and ample off street parking. There is a shed for bike and garden equipment storage, a Hills Hoist, and a lovely garden with some fruit trees and a new veggie patch. Bills (shared) include gas, electricity and internet. We have a cleaner come once a fortnight. It is fully furnished (photos taken while house was still empty), except for your room. About the area: You are a 10 minute walk from either the Watson or Hackett shops, and about 2km from the large Dickson shopping complex. Or you can be looking at kangaroos at the base of Mt Majura within a 15 minute walk. There are two bus routes to the city that leave a few minutes from the house, or it is 20 minute ride to the city. You can be either in the bush, in the city or at the shops within 15-20 minutes.
I'm a young, friendly and tidy professional who works full time, exercises regularly and has a steady social life. Pretty standard. Ideally, I'm looking to share with 1 or 2 others who are similar.
I'm a 26 year old working full time Monday-Friday looking for a new place to live in the ACT. I'm friendly and love to have a chat with housemates over drinks/dinner or even going out for social activities but at the same time I respect that everyone needs their space and privacy. I keep things clean and tidy (without being too over the top) and all rent and bills paid on time. I like to keep a relaxed and happy vibe at home - I have no problem at all with visitors but prefer to not be in a 'party' house. After work during the week I like to just chill out with dinner, a glass of wine and some music - I'm not much of a TV watcher myself but it doesn't bother me if others are. Sometimes I will watch a series or movie on Netflix instead :-P I enjoy cooking at home and also going out somewhere for a good feed. I have no pets of my own but I am more than happy to live in a place with pets. I've lived in a few sharehouses previously, I'm happy to share chores/housework and I'm pretty conscious of keeping things easy and enjoyable for everyone :) If you think I might be a good fit for your home or even have any questions, please get in touch :)

Hi I'm Nat I'm a law student from Brisbane but am graduating and moving to Canberra on Oct 25 for an Internship .I've stayed in Share Houses before and I really like it and enjoy being in other people's company. I'm easy to get a long with and clean up after myself . My internship is full time so I won't be around all that much but when I am more than happy to hang out.

Im 23yrs and originally from Sydney. Recently graduated from uni and fortunately secured a 1 year grad program in Canberra. I enjoy cooking and baking, plus Netflix and chill. My grad program starts at the end of October, so Im looking for a room that would be available than.
I am from India, and will join ANU from 1st October. I am fun loving, clean, and quite person. I like privacy but sometimes enjoy partying with friends.
Alicia: I am relaxed but do love to chat after a day's work, I am a housemate who is friendly and easygoing at the same time. I will respect your privacy but hope to be on friendly terms with my housemates. I am enthusiastic about good coffee, bike riding, seeing live music and reading. I also have a partner, Tom, who will be visiting for a bit and then living with me after I move to Canberra. He also loves coffee and bike riding and can play the guitar quite well. Tom loves any beer that is brown/strong and purchasing LPs for his record player. He is a vegetarian, but i'm not and will eat almost anything. We will both be full-time professionals who want to make the most of our time in Canberra with weekend trips and socialising. Both of us have been living with 3 other flatmates in Melbourne, with a cleaning roster that we stick to.
As a tidy tech head all I need is a warm spot for a bed and a desk, a fairly quiet house after 11 and a patch of driveway to work on my truck. By trade I am a designer, but I love illustration, sculpting and woodwork. I am from Melbourne originally, I am currently running out a Government contract until I head to the US around May. I get along well with people, love the occasional adult beverage and a bit of a coffee nut. I love to cook, but hate piles of dishes in the sink. Love cats and doges - though my allergies say otherwise, I just deal with it. I love the outdoors so I will be out most weekends over the warmer months, either camping in the ranges or hiking some of the valleys of SE Namadgi.
Hi, I am a very considerate, reliable and friendly flatmate. I lead a very busy life between working and studying. Looking for my own space (either independent or in a share situation), with respectful, neat and pleasant people. I am looking for a very large room with ensuite or a granny flat type situation. Looking for long term stay, 6months minimum.
I am friendly ,reliable , and musical. I am a Canberra local and looking to move from my current place as my landlords have had a change in family circumstance. I enjoy cooking, listening to music and play in an orchestra weekly.

I'm currently still completing year 12, and intend to do further study at UNI. I've been working at a cafe for 3 years and enjoy it very much. I can be a social person, chat about mutual interests and enjoy getting to know people. I also enjoy my alone quiet time as well. I can confidently say I am mature for my age, due to growing up with a single parent and three younger brothers. Also meaning I am no stranger to cleaning up my own mess as well as assisting to keep the household tidy. I'm into reading and watching a few different TV shows, also a huge cat person, so wouldn't mind moving into a house with a cat or any type of animal! I've been in Canberra for majority of my life and intend to stay here. I'm not planning to move out until later in the year however, and just want to extend my feelers out to see what's available. Thanks!
I'm Elson, 27, from Taiwan, and gonna be ANU student from next semester. Now, I'm holding Working Holiday VISA for being familiar with Canberra in advanced, also I have a very stable PT job just right in Canberra Centre. I'm very easy going. Mostly, I would only play guitar and watch street dance video while being at home. Please inbox me if you think I could be a good member in your house.
Hi there, My name is Clare, and I'm looking to start a share house or join an existing one with at least one other female in a peaceful home, ideally in the inner north suburbs of Canberra. I'm keen for a sense of community at home, so prefer to live with people who are happy to share a meal or cup of tea from time to time, but am also aware of respecting people's need for space/ down time. I work full time in the government in a social justice role, and in my spare time catch up with friends, see bands, listen to music, exercise. I am good with paying bills on time and pitching in for chores. I like watching SBS/ABC occasionally ... Looking for 6 -12 month lease. If this sounds of interest, please drop me a line with a little about yourself. Thankyou!
Iam Vikas a masters student from ANU,Iam currently looking rent a room on the inner north, possibly to move in by the end of October. Iam 24 and originally from bangalore, India. Been here about 8 months more or less. Working in domino's Fyshwick. I also teach dance in Canberra school of bollywood dancing and Hobbys are photography and videography. Iam clean tidy and respectful of others space and enjoy socializing as well.
I recently graduated from ANU with an Honours in Geography and now I'm hanging out in Canberra just having a seriously lovely time. I'm into climate justice and poetry, and I like summer evening bike rides and I've just re-discovered Nick Cave (!!!). I'm a Ravenclaw, and my preference is cheap wine or expensive beer. Basically a classic Canberra leftie. I really want a house where people chat and hang out and cook together, not just hide in their rooms. I like places that are neat and tidy, and where everyone respects the space. I have two chickens (Taylor Swift and Lorde). They are good layers but don't have to come with me as pets aren't suitable for every house!
Hello my name is Sarah and I wanted to send through my expression of interest into your available room which sounds great :) A bit about me: I am 25 and am currently studying my Masters of teaching by correspondence. I work at an after school care during the week and am looking for somewhere peaceful to settle & call home with some like hearted people while living here in Canberra town. I moved up to Canberra from Melbourne in February of this year. I lived in Melbourne for 5 years & while there I experienced many share homes... so I feel familiar with all the ins & outs of community living - sharing, caring, respect & fun :) I studied art in Melbourne as well as art therapy so I enjoy all things creative. I am currently learning to play guitar too....In my spare time I enjoy being quiet, making art & craft, baking, gardening, exploring Canberra's nature spots, yoga and meditation. I would be happy to pop round & visit some time & meet everyone if you all feel like it too. Thank you & all the best, Sarah :)
Hi, I'm a postgraduate student looking to share a place with sociable people (no worries, I also have great respect for private space). I prefer gathering and hanging out with friends for a round of drink every now and then over wild party nights. A casual chat at home while sharing a drink will also do the trick--add some video games and sports in the mix too! Cheers!

I'm a 31 year old ex-public servant, currently looking for casual employment whilst I wait to commence study next year (Psychology). I am a single mum, however, my 2 year old daughter, Arabella, currently resides with my parents in Kambah. Although there is no formal care/visitation arrangements in place with my folks, it is expected that I go to Kambah to fulfill my visitation requirements, and it would be only on a very rare occasion that I would have to care for Arabella at my own abode. Other than that, I like to get out to see friends as much as possible, get out to gigs when I can, go out for dinner etc, but I also love just vegging at home and watching movies/TV series/Netflix, doing my crosswords, reading, listening to music etc. I am also a bit of an amateur musician - I sing and play a little acoustic guitar. This is a hobby I really want to get back into after years of being a bit lazy about the whole thing. NB: Please note that although I am a smoker, I am strictly an outdoor smoker.

Hi ! I'm a french student in an engineering school in Paris. I am currently in a gap year and after 6 months in Sweden, I will spend 6 months in Canberra for an internship at the CSIRO.

Im easy to get along with and know how to clean up after myself. I am moving to Canberra for work and to study so I will already have things going on and will not need to be acclimated. I dont mind cooking for others and sharing.
I'm a graduate moving down from Brisbane. I like to keep fit & healthy! I like good conversation & fun times. New to Canberra, excited to see all that Canberra has to offer.
From day-to-day, I love to cook, be healthy, practice yoga, go for runs, watch movies, read, and listen to music. Less day-to-day, I enjoy travelling abroad and road-tripping at home. I'm from Canberra, but have lived in the USA as a dual citizen; currently studying human rights and development studies at the ANU while working on the side. Also passionate about the environment and responsible consumerism.
Bubbly, outgoing and neat individual, who likes going to the gym and exploring the outdoors. I don't smoke or get rowdy, and am looking to live with friendly people as I am moving to Canberra from Sydney for full-time work. I'm sociable and definitely will hold my end of the deal when it comes to household chores! I don't mind having a beverage with my flatmates, eating good food and having a tv show marathon. But I also am respectful of personal space and giving people their own down time.
I'm Katie! I'm moving to Canberra for postgrad study after a very exciting gap year abroad. I'm looking forward to starting a new life in Canberra and meeting lots of new people. I did my whole undergrad in Brisbane and I'm ready for a change! Ideally my housemates would be interesting, friendly, open and sociable. Of course I value clenliness and respect too but that sort of goes without saying :D I like to have a good relationship with my housemates and would much prefer open doors and friendship to quiet, formal interactions. Please let me know if you have any rooms available :D
